Joseph Hogan joined the Brown University Biostatics Department in 1995 and the PSTC in 1996. He serves as co-director of the Outcomes and Biostatistics Core for the Center for AIDS Research and is director of the Biostatistics Graduate Program. 

Hogan's research concerns the development of statistical methods for missing data, causal inference, and sensitivity analysis with focus on applications in HIV and behavioral sciences. In recent years, the primary emphasis of his research and training efforts is on HIV in sub-Saharan Africa. Current projects concern development of methods for analysis of large-scale observational data, optimizing use of limited resources for clinical monitoring, and analysis of viral sequence data.
